Issues subject to regulation Public services are rarely designed in citizen insights in mind. Citizens are neither entitled to provide conceptual feedback on the quality of the services nor suggest improvements. Feedback windows in government websites do not serve the purpose of collecting user perspective on such services. Moreover, there is no channel for processing the feedback and informing decision-makers to develop policies based on the accumulated knowledge and information.
Allow citizens to evaluate their public services with the help of simplified feedback, as well as make suggestions about them, which will contribute to more effective participation and improvement of the quality of public services. Evaluation is carried out both by quantitative and qualitative criteria (how long does it last and how satisfy is the citizen)?
It is important to secure every user’s active participation in different phases of service development and assessment for improving service quality. The crowd sourcing of users’ opinions does not only foster improved public participation but also in short time allows the executive to improve public services based on the constant feedback loop results.
Accountable and participatory public administration, as the key factor for democratic governance and economic development, does not only correspond to the principles of the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN, but also to the principles of the European Neighborhood (EN) policy.
It is of vital importance to secure citizen’s participation in public administration, particularly in public service development and delivery to ensure accountability. SIGMA in cooperation with EN has defined in details each of the key sectors of public administration in “Public Governance Principles: a framework for ENP countries” document.
This document puts emphasis on the direct participation of the citizens in public services evaluation and feedback provision and will be the key guideline to evaluate RA public services in the upcoming years.
Main objective Commitment has two aspects: firstly, the citizen receives an accessible direct democracy tool to evaluate public services; secondly, the executive gets a complete picture of citizens’ rating and raised issues through visualized data, which allows to be more informed and make evidence-based decisions.
The executive gets responsibility for responding and providing appropriate solutions to the raised issues and public opinion related with public services.
The list and the volume of the services to be rated will be clarified through research that will be developed in the initial phase of the commitment.

Develop a human-oriented and user-friendly interface which will encourage citizens to participate in the design and evaluation of public services.
